Here at Safe Options , we have compiled a list of the top 5 best home safes on the market to answer the question:

“What is the best Safe in 2018 for my home”

The primary reason for a home safe should be to secure cash, jewellery and important documents such as passports. When considering what safe to buy it is important to determine what your biggest threat actually is. The biggest threat to homes is theft, with around 2 in 100 households year ending March 2017 being victims of domestic burglaries. Customers will usually want a fire and a security safe, although this usually impairs security unless you double your budget.

When it comes to protection, you get what you pay for!

What we would recommend for these customers would be to purchase a security safe but also purchase a Flame Retardant Wallet for those important documents. Below is a table of our top 5 home safes, all for different reasons which we will continue in detail shortly.
